NUI Galway Students’ Union has opened the application process for Charities wishing to be considered as beneficiaries for its annual fundraising campaign for 2022/23.

Last year students ran a series of events including a giant Christmas Raffle, a Taylor Swift night, saucy Sex Toy Bingo, charity Take Me Out, table quizzes, and a Sports Day.

They raised €11,000 for Galway Rape Crisis Centre and BeLonG To Youth Services.

Application forms for the 2022/23 fund are available from the Students’ Union website and the closing date for applications is 5pm Monday 29th of August 2022.

The SU has said that any canvassing will automatically disqualify your charity from this process. 

Students’ Union Vice-President/Welfare and Equality Officer Imogen O’Flaherty Falconer said that despite the constant cutbacks and daily challenges we all face, NUI Galway students have a very proud tradition of raising money for charities.

“This year we hope to raise even more money for good causes with our Charity events. These events will encourage our students to get involved in helping their community whilst also making friends and having fun.”
